The wheat bundles will be threshed at the county fair and young people, who hardly know what a pitchfork looks like, will get to throw a few bundles in Ihe machine Talbert will be erating. .Talbert ran a thresherjor 37 years, so he'll be a pro hand when he starts up the 22-inch, 1829 model thresher at the fair, starting Aug. 17. The Talberls bought their first combine in 1952 and it a heavy load off the binder. However, he still liked (o bind oats. He stopped using the thre- sher in 19C7 but says il will in good order for the fair.
